Netflix Streaming Report: Beasts of No Nation, Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for October 22, 2015. After the long week you deserve a relaxing staycation with a bowl of popcorn, a bucket of ice cream, and only your Netflix queue to judge you. This past week, Netflix Watch Instant has been kind enough to supply us with Beasts of No Nation, Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, Ain’t Them Body Saints, and more. Also, see all the titles that are leaving as of November 1.

Beasts of No Nation

Beasts of No Nation (Cary Joji Fukunaga) Not Rated [137 min] – A drama based on the experiences of Agu, a child soldier fighting in the civil war of an unnamed African country. Starring Idris Elba, Abraham Attah, Emmanuel Affadzi, and Ricky Adelayitor [Watch the Trailer]

There’s been a ton of buzz surrounding Beasts of No Nation, and sadly I have not had time to check it out; mostly because I want to be prepared for its dower subject matter. Once I see it I’ll be sure to update with my thoughts. It looks very impressive and I hear Idris Elba has Oscar potential.

Marvel's Avengers Assemble


Marvel’s Avengers Assemble (Jack Kirby, Kari Rosenberg, Joe Simon, and Wendy Willming) Rated TV-Y7-FV [23 min] – The further adventures of the Marvel Universe’s mightiest general membership superhero team. Starring Fred Tatasciore, Roger Craig Smith, and Troy Baker

I’m a bigger fan of Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, but since that series has been replaced with Avengers Assemble we’ll have to deal with it. This series is a mediocre substitute that treads over a lot of the same story threads and villains over and over again. It’s still enjoyable to see these characters work together, but I wish it wasn’t as childish and more character driven.

Ain't them body saints

Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (David Lowery) Rated R [96 min] – The tale of an outlaw who escapes from prison and sets out across the Texas hills to reunite with his wife and the daughter he has never met. Starring Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck, and Ben Foster [Watch the Trailer]

I’m not a huge fan of Ain’t Them Body Saints. I think all the actors involve do a stand up job, but the story didn’t fascinate me or capture my attention. Perhaps it may be something you would enjoy?

Anthony Jeselnik Thoughts and Prayers

Anthony Jeselnik: Thoughts and Prayers Rated TV-MA [59 min] – There’s no subject too dark as the comedian skewers taboos and riffs on national tragedies before pulling back the curtain on his provocative style.

There’s something about Anthony Jeselnik’s deadpan, cynical humor that cracks me up. His comedy is so dark and uncomfortable that you can’t help but laugh. His subject matter is disturbing and not for the faint of heart. He’s been on a handful of Comedy Central’s roasts, which give you a pretty good idea where his mind is at. Check out his roast of Donald Trump.
